Belle Of The Ball

Tonight Ivy went to her first Gala with Mommy & Daddy. Dolled up in a cute pink dress and tights and all of a sudden I had a stomach drop moment- dressing her and overcome by all the pink! oh so much pink!


I catch myself blinking and trying to make sense of it... is this really real? I have a daughter and she is just the sweetest soul. She likes me. And I like her. A whole lot.

When we go places, she attracts smiles and coos and glistening wrinkled eyes from old people.

At home, she adds the the icing and pink sprinkles to our already delicious cake. We had a pretty good party going on before she arrived. And she is truly the belle of our ball.


Ivy LaRue- 6 weeks old

Alright, alright! She can be seen in the pink dress here.

  24. Oh you're making me really wish I had a girl. lol Alas, I doubt it will happen as this pregnancy has been so so difficult that I do believe it'll be our last. I'll just live through you and Ivy ;)

    Beautiful photo of you two. Who do you think she is resembling? Does she look like any of your boys?

  33. I love that pink dress! And Ivy is starting to show her own little look, not quite so newborn. She reminds me of Allison at that age.

  37. One of my best friends had a girl last year after two boys -- and she didn't know what she was having. She is still in HEAVEN. Pink is the best.

    She is so sweet, Stephanie.
